11.2 The Client acknowledges that the Software:
11.2.1 has not been developed to meet the Client's individual requirements, and that it is therefore the Client's responsibility to ensure that the facilities and functions of the Software as described in the Specification meet the Client's requirements; and
11.2.2 may not be free of bugs or errors, and agrees that the existence of minor errors shall not constitute a breach of a licence granted under these terms.
11.3 If, within the Warranty Period, the Client notifies Vismo in writing of any defect or fault in the Software in consequence of which it fails to perform substantially in accordance with the Specification, and such defect or fault does not result from the Client having amended the Software or used it in contravention of the terms of a licence granted under these terms, Vismo will, at its sole option, either repair or replace the Software, provided that the Client makes available all the information that may be necessary to help Vismo to remedy the defect or fault, including sufficient information to enable Vismo to recreate the defect or fault.
11.4 Each party warrants to the other that it has full right, power and authority to enter into and perform its obligations under this Agreement.
11.5 All warranties, conditions, or terms not set out in the Agreement and which would otherwise be implied or incorporated into the Agreement by reason of statute, common law or otherwise (other than as to the title to goods and statutory interest) are hereby excluded, except to the extent they may not be excluded or limited by law.
12.1 Nothing in this Agreement shall affect the liability of either party for death or personal injury, fraud, or any other liability to the extent it cannot be excluded or limited by law.

13.1.4 to keep separate from all other information all Confidential Information of the other in its possession or control.

14.2 All personal data acquired by a party from another shall be returned or deleted (at the option of the requesting party) on request save to the extent required by that party to discharge its obligations under the Agreement or under any legal or regulatory requirement, and any personal data which are retained shall be returned or deleted immediately they are no longer required for those purposes.
